Overview

Blue Horizon by Wilbur Smith, Smith

The New York Times bestselling author and one of the greatest adventure writers of our time returns with a pulse-pounding tale of danger, courage, and suspense.

Tom Courtney and his brother Dorian battled both vicious enemies and nature itself on the high seas, finally reaching the Cape of Good Hope to start life afresh. Now, half a generation later, they are successful and contented: merchants and family men, prospering on the very edge of an immense and beautiful continent, Africa. In the tradition of Wilbur Smith's earlier bestseller, Monsoon, this spellbinding new novel introduces the next generation of Courtneys. They are out to stake their claim in Southern Africa, traveling along the infamous "Robbers' Road."

It is a journey both exciting and hazardous—-one that takes them through the untouched wilderness of a beautiful land filled with warring tribes and wild animals. But the most dangerous predators of all are other Europeans, crazed by greed, jealousy, and lust, and determined to destroy utterly all members of the Courtney clan. This quest for vengeance results in a desperate chase—-both on land and sea—-that is one of the most extraordinary in modern literature.

Blue Horizon is a truly great adventure story, told by a master novelist at the height of his powers.

Wilbur Smith is the last of the great epic writers. His tales are mesmerizing and addictive. River God, Seventh Scroll, Birds of Prey... these novels are worth reading. I was caught off guard when I learned that Wilbur has a new release of 'Blue Horizon'. I am sure that it will live up to expectations. A 'good tree' such as Wilbur Smith cannot produce 'bad-fruit'.

I started reading Wilbur Smith many years ago as a young women....his novels of Africa entranced me. Now his novels, especially those of the Egyptian era, keep me just as entranced. I can't put the book down once I start reading. He can't write fast enough to suit me.

I first found a dog earred copy of 'The Angels Weep' Since that time I have tracked down every single book he has ever written. 'Just one more page',(this at 4 a.m. in the morning). I feel as if I am in the African Veld. I have never been disappointed in anything Wilbur Smith has ever written. Wonderful Author.

Blue Horizon is such an amazing read! The charachters are so rich and well developed that you feel as though you know them. You smile at their playful banter, you suffer along with them, you long for them to succeed, you celebrate their victories. This is my personal favorite of all Wilbur Smith books I've read. Wilbur Smith's descriptions of the vast scape of the African continent make you feel as if you are there within the story. I can't wait to read even more of the Courtney family exploits.
